Notocrypta paralysos 窄紋袖弄蝶

窄紋袖弄蝶 Notocrypta paralysos

The first photographic record of  adult in the wild of HK



HKLS is always devoted herself to the science of lepidopterology. In recent years, Mr. James Young is conducting a study of HK skippers and has discovered eggs and larvae of Notocrypta paralysos, a species never been recorded before, in various places in Hong Kong. However, its adult form was still hard to find despite the wide spread of immature forms in the wild. It was until April 2014, a HKLS member managed to have a sighting in Lantau Island and got a first photographic record of the adult in the wild. This sighting also complemented the missing information of the study of HK skippers.

HKLS will announce details of Notocrypta paralysos in near future. Please stay tuned.

Looking forward 2014 – 2015 2014年至2015年展望

To All Members

               Forward looking

The weekday work shop will resume. The date will be announced from time to time on our HKLS website. There may be another work shop for the weekend. However, it depends on our members participation.

The 1st work shop will start at 9:30am on 17th June 2014. There will be a lot of follow up work to be done including fumigating our specimen boxes, inventoring our books and specimens and of course cleaning our HKLS office.

The projects for the year that we envisage to carry out are :

1)   Butterfly survey – publishing last year results and designing this year location. We are still looking for a coordinator for the survey;

2)   Id works for several species including investigating references, dissecting of genitalia and wing venation analysis of connecting points for the following species:

a)    Ypthima imitans Elwes & Edwards, 1893 vs Ypthima motschulskyi (Bremer & Grey, 1853);

b)   Curetis acuta Moore, 1877 vs Curetis dentata Moore, 1879 ( same species for correction of names in HK);

c)    Heliophorus epicles (Godart, [1824]) vs Heliophorus ila (de Nicéville & Martin, [1896]);

We plan to offer talks on butterflies once every two months.

Volume 5 of our life history series is planned to go ahead depending finding a coordinator. We should have some ideas in coming weeks.

For the moth lovers, I hope to start working on some life histories of macro moth families. However, it again depends on our members involvement.

If you are interested and wish to join, please let me know.

James Young


014/15 本會的工作計畫





1) 蝴蝶調查 – 公佈去年調查結果、落實本年度的調查地點。本會將物色一位義務調查統籌員以主理調查項目。

2) 為以下數種本地物種確定身份的研究,方法包括文獻研究、解剖生殖器、翅脈連結點分析等:

a) 擬四眼矍眼蝶 Ypthima imitans (Elwes & Edwards, 1893) 與 東亞矍眼蝶Ypthima motschulskyi (Bremer & Grey, 1853);
b) 尖翅銀灰蝶 Curetis acuta (Moore, 1877) 與 同名的 尖翅銀灰蝶Curetis dentata (Moore, 1879) ~ (可能是相同品種,研究能為香港的物種正名)
c) 斜斑彩灰蝶 Heliophorus epicles (Godart, 1824) 與 紅邊黃小灰蝶Heliophorus ila (de Nicéville & Martin, 1896);

~ 計劃每2個月舉辦一次蝴蝶講座
~ 如有適合人選作統籌,本會考慮出版有關蝴蝶生命史的<香港蝴蝶圖誌。第五冊>
~ 如有適合人選參與,本會考慮開展大型蛾類生命史的工作

如各位會員對以上義務工作有興趣的話,請聯絡本會( )
